    Aeonium pruning/propagating

    I've taken the plunge and snipped them each into three today!!!!! Fingers crossed the original stumps sprout and I get some extra from the cuttings. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  3. Hi. I have 2 aeoniums that don't want to branch and are getting a bit top heavy. So I thought I'd prune them to help them and create more... I've watched a video of how to do It, but it didn't say when. Does anyone know what time of year? I'm thinking Spring, but don't know whether to do it soon or wait til they are outside in warmer weather. It's Velour and Swartzkof (sorry not sure of spelling) I have a lovely green one that smells of lemons which has branched naturally and I thought the Velour was going to do the same. I have bought myself 4 more, which arrived today they are small, but all so different.... Whoops going to need more room Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

    My Sarracenia has grown massive this year!

    Thanks to you both. I shall pot it on so it's more stable and keep it in the current soil so it doesn't get disturbed too much. Thanks again Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

    Filiformis not doing well....

    Hi Mark. Yes I'm in the UK in sunny Dorset, although it's not been a very sunny Sept! Ok maybe it has just gone to sleep then. My other Drosera are still growing away in the greenhouse so I was worried. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

    Filiformis not doing well....

    Hello. My filiformis wasn't doing well in the heat of my greenhouse so after advice from here I popped it outside and it soon recovered and was doing great. Unfortunately I haven't checked on it much recently and the weather has changed to crazy rain and wind and cooler temps. It's now looking really sorry for itself. It's got no dew or any healthy new shoots. Do you think it's gone dormant? Or just sulking? I've moved it back to the greenhouse so it's out of the wind and a bit warmer. I've attached a before and after picture. Most exciting though my new Drosera is just about to flower... Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  8. Hello. Just after a bit of advice, I've had this plant for 4 ish years and it flowered for the first time this year. It has put out loads of huge pitchers since then and I'm wondering if I need to repot it? I've put a picture of it with it's flower bud at the start of the summer and another of what it looks like today. Thanks for looking. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

    Help with Drosera Retundifolia seedlings

    Just wanted to say thank you for your advice to put the filliformis outside. It looks much happier. No more brown tips to the leaves and it's getting back to being covered in dew. Lots of new leaves uncurling too. Sadly the tiny retundifolia have disappeared into the compost so I think they had deteriorated too far. Might have to treat myself to a plant! [emoji6]
